save, we will not share this information with the government unless required by law, in terms of use, and frequently there are statements analogous to that and the many you click send and complete it if this bill were law, the company you gave that information to could then turn around in violation of their own terms of use and provide all the information to the government. now, the limitations on what the government could do with that information are completely inadequate. there is a section of the bill on page 10 and 11 that deals with those limitations. first it says that information can be used for cybersecurity purposes. ok, that's the murp of the bill, investigation and prosecution of cybersecurity crimes. that's ok. then it goes far afield into pretty much everything. it talks about bodily harm, danger of death, when we look at bodily harm and bodily njury that includes things under u.s.c. 1365, can cuts abrasions, bruises, disfigurements, including mental pain. this is anything the government wants to use the information for. painer that can cause paper cuts. the government c

that there will be some change in the electoral law, in the expanse public sector and for the italian politics and some changes in terms of structural reforms that could carry over until the beginning of next year. while obviously it's not the ideal scenario overall, because italy needs something more than just a little changes here and there, but that would be the first step in the right direction. >> right. and as annalisa says, futures could cause near term volatility. thanks very much. she's a senior economist at new edge. speaking of tumultuous, russia's president is coming under controver controversy. while russia's economy hadn't performed badly last year, falling commodity prices risk pushing the country into recession. these comments come just hours after president putin threatened to fire officials for not following his orders on public spending. geoff cutmore is outside this event. what are you hearing about these concerns and the russian economy overnight? >> reporter: absolutely. fascinating issue. we clearly see some risks emerging in the russian government at this point. and i just want
